Download Pre-Release of Ex-New Order Members Album for $2.99- This Week Only
From the ashes of New Order comes Bad Lietenant formed by ever resiliant Bernard Sumner who also built New Order from the remains of Joy Division after the death of Ian Curtis. You will hear a lot of similarities to New Order, since Sumner and drummer Stephen Morris go way back to the earliest edition of Joy Division and guitarist Phil Cunningham has been associated with New Order since 2001's Get Ready album.
Their first album isn't scheduled for release until October 6th but Amazon began a one week $2.99 prerelease sale of Never Cry Another Tear yesterday to drum up some word of mouth on the album. Upon a few listenings I'm happy to report Never Cry Another Tear is stonger than Get Ready or Waiting for The Sirens' Call, New Order's final two albums for Warner.
During this week the album will be available as a digital download exclusively through Amazon.com; subsequently, for one month beginning October 13, the full, physical CD can be purchased only at Amazon.com. On November 10, Never Cry Another Tear will be distributed to all other retail outlets via a partnership with Original Signal Recordings.
You can download the entire album for $2.99 at Amazon.com until Tuesday October 6th when it's officially released. After Monday, the digital download of Never Cry Another Tear will cost $8.99 at Amazon and probably more at other download services.
